Paean to a Pipe

Since ancient days man has puffed on pipes

seeking knowledge and solace

with all types

from wood to pumice

from steel to glass

from copper to brass

a receptacle for opium tars

a way to smoke grass

under the stars

pipe dreams throughout history

have kept a lot of people happy
